Aesthetic Cinemarxism

9781350024236-1

After a lengthy gestation process, Samir Gandesha and Johan Hartle’s volume Aesthetic Marx finally sees the light of day this month, courtesy of Bloomsbury (of Harry Potter fame). The book sees aesthetic questions—in the fundamental sense of issues pertaining to the body and perception, appearance and abstraction—as inherent in Marx’s work and indeed as central to it. I contributed the essay “Filming Capital: On Cinemarxism in the Twenty-first Century,” in which I discuss projects by filmmakers and artists including Sekula/Burch, Alexander Kluge, Farocki/Ehmann, Hito Steyerl and Zachary Formwalt.
